Thread: Kit builders, what would you like???
26/04/2016 12:19:28

Hi Jon,

As we've mentioned earlier in this thread ~ that Hurri would really be nice at around 80 inches and a laser 150/180 up front. wink. back to me day dreaming.

As a Hurricane lover this is a good shout. My MR Hurricane was nice but was lacking somewhat in the scale outline as it lacked the 3 piece wing of the much smaller warbirds kit and this did irritate me a bit. if Richard's existing Hurricane was scaled up to 80 inch and flying weight of 14-18lbs that would be well within reach of 120-200 4 strokes or petrol 20-30cc.

That would be sweet...

A 1/6th Hurricane ~ something like the old Mick Reeves job ~ simple to put together but had the right outline. That one looked good from a distance and flew really well too.

Inverted Lancasters and B29's doing loops and flat spins, and scale models being given the bank and yank kinda irks me. I'm not really sure why, I just think they look better flown in a scale sort of way.

hi Jon,

I read somewhere that Alex Henshaw barrel rolled a Lancaster on a couple of occasions. The mind boggles...

However, as I opened with, the ANO (specifically the four articles 137, 138, 166 and 167), are required to be complied with - even if all you're flying is a paper aeroplane - it makes no difference, you are subject to the law. It therefore makes perfect sense to me that we should expect pilots to know these four brief articles, by heart if necessary. But I appear to be in a minority of one in that view!


I've been RC flying for near on 25 years and free flight before that. I totally agree with BEB comment above.

I never thought about that one, but now it's been mentioned the piston Provost would make a great choice. I for one wouldn't mind seeing this one a s free plan...

I have an old Irvine 46 swinging a 11/7 prop in mine and standard Futaba 148 servos through out. it flies really well on this engine/prop combo.

Thread: A daft question regarding control snakes
30/12/2015 15:14:43

The really good thing is that this is the first and only time I've used snakes ~ so all the fitting etc. are the correct 2-56 Sullivan stuff.

I did once witness the outcome of incorrectly matched threads... wasn't prettylaugh.

Thanks to everyone for all of the replies above. I'll try some off them out and see how I get on.

Daft question re snakes…

I’ve been modelling for a number of years, but in all that time I have never used snakes for control runs. For my current project I’m using Gold-N-Rods by Sullivan. So, I’m after any tips on how to screw the threaded rod into the yellow inner cable.

So far, I’ve immersed one end in to hot water which has allowed me to screw the rod in, but is there a better way of achieving this?



Thread: Acro Wot ARTF (balsa) chat
18/05/2014 08:12:47

I've just recently put one of these in to the air and it has had 15 flights to date. I've balanced slightly to the rear of the recommended balance point and needed around 6 ounces of lead bolted to the engine bearer. All up weight is 5 3/4 pounds and it has a Irvine 46 up front turning a 11/7 prop.

It flies a treat and a mention else where in this thread doesn't like slowing down in light wind conditions. Mind you, I found keeping the nose slight high on approach and maintaining height with the throttle always allows it to slow enough for a smooth landing and short roll out.

In essence it a really nice model to play with and I really like flying it thumbs up.

Just a quick question, do you think a Laser 100 would be man enough for this one?
